    What IEM sounds closest to the signature of the HD580/600?

    The IE8 is the only IEM that got me to sell my beloved HD600 (favorite full size headphone), but it may have been more out of convenience than anything else. They are somewhat close in sound, but don't assume that the IE8 is the HD600 in IEM form. Detail level is about the same, the HD600 has...

    To isolate or not to isolate? That is the question!

    So the usual intro, I own the IE8 and my best friend owns the SE530. While I definitely prefer the IE8 sound signature, if isolation is an issue, then I wholeheartedly recommend the SE530 over the IE8 ... I mean, you can't enjoy the IE8 sound signature if you can't hear it without breaking your...

    Oh, I didn't know about the 15% off from Earphone Solutions. I would definitely want the warranty for just $15 more. Haha yeah, I guess you could consider me a Philly person, though I'm really only a student in Philly.

    Wondering? For those who have a IE7 or IE8, is it worth it owning both?

    Yeah, definitely not as recessed as the TF10s. I think despite there being a bit of mid recession, it won't really bother you because the IE8 sound is so wide and airy that the mid recession seems like integrated or not that exaggerated/out of place (ok, that was a terrible explanation but the...

    What is a standard CKKIII comparable to?

    I had a chance to A/B the CK2III and the PPA and preferred the PPA by a little bit (I should mention the PPA had OPA627 installed). The bass was a bit tighter and the detail was better with the PPA while the CK2III had the smoother midrange. I am not a DIYer so I don't really know what the...

    Help with Nearfield Monitors ... Ground Loop Isolator?

    So I recently purchased a pair of Mackie MR5 active monitors and so far, I am reasonably satisfied. However, at first, I had them plugged into the same power strip as my computer, screen, hard drive, etc etc (I have a lot of electronics to say the least), and with this set up, there was a...

    Oh, the memories...

    I'm just glad I convinced my best friend to buy SE530's ... everyone else, it's not really my problem so I just say nothing (however I get a ton of weird looks when I take a second glance at someone's headphones/IEMs when I think I see something mid to hi-fi and turn out to be wrong ... that's...

    Jeff bought a MisterX Gamma 1 Lite from me, it was really a no hassle, very straightforward transaction made especially pleasant by his excellent communication and quick payment. Definitely a recommended Head-Fier to do business with.

    Quote: Originally Posted by barleyguy I would describe the FX500 as warm and organic, and not particularly bassy. I think they are great IEM's, but not what I would consider a basshead phone. Not particularly bassy?? Are we talking about the same IEMs?

    SOLD: Rockhopper PPA

    I think I am going in a different direction with my audio so I am thinking about selling this amp. Bought it from Head-Fier Dash about 4 months ago and has served me very well paired with my HD600. The amp is built on the V1.1A board but with the discrete diamond buffers installed so it is...

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Nuforce uDAC USB DAC AMP with line out and S/PDIF out

    I would also like to mention that there is a noticeable difference in soundstage between the uDAC and Fuze with my IE8--quite a bit more air with the uDAC, I'm loving it! Now I am not sure if this is due to the DAC portion or the fact that it's amped (I listen unamped from my Fuze) ... I guess I...
